Slough

The grammar schools in Slough are members of the Slough Consortium. Your child will only need to take one 11+ exam to apply to any of these grammar schools.

What is the 11+?

The 11+ (11 plus) is an academic exam that children take in Year 6. Grammar schools use the results of this test to decide which children to offer places to in Year 7.

The exam is designed to be challenging. Grammar schools use it to select children working in the top ability range in their year group.

The content of the exam depends on your child's target school and their exam provider. Most grammar schools in England use 11+ exams created by a provider called GL Assessment. They provide tests in English, maths, verbal reasoning and non-verbal reasoning. Your target school might include questions in some or all of these subjects.

In the video below, Chloe will help you learn more about the 11 plus, including the subjects assessed, how 11 plus exams are marked, and resources you can use to help your child feel confident for their exam!
